Poorly Cut Threads
on February 6, 2012
The hood I received has very poorly cut/sized threads. Be VERY careful threading this hood into a lens or filter (in fact, you are taking a risk of damaging your wonderful Olympus lens). I was in the photo equipment business for over 20 years, and this is the worst fitting threaded accessory (filters, hoods, adapter rings, etc.) I've ever seen! Other reviewers didn't mention this, so I possibly just have a bad copy.
This is a useful, otherwise nicely finished item...especially considering the low price.
One tip (if you're still brave enough to try this hood): It can utilize a 46mm lens cap. Just order an inexpensive 46mm cap, and you're in business.
